New Englander Malcolm up in Boothbay, Maine has been wearing his Ben Davis Chore Coat for the last 5 years and might have the most righteous fade history I’ve ever seen. The thing is he purchased this jacket for work – a great omen for epic fades. But the work wasn’t just any work, Malcolm was starting to build his own timber frame house – as one does. And from then on, while juggling the build, he was doing carpentry and masonry jobs with this jacket on at all times along the way. Building fades while building a house? This might be a Heddels first.
Now, we don’t know how the house turned out but if it’s half as good as this jacket and the roof doesn’t leak, I’d say it was a success. Getting just one wash and one soak, what you see is what you get. And thats a wild gradient from the top-down as if was in front of a light source in darkroom. The top is for sure broken in but it’s the torso-to-waist area thats completely blasted. Although it’s the whiskering that extends the whole sleeve that really has my attention.
